More Detail on the Inca Trail

As promised, a little more detail on our Inca trail trip.

Day 1:
We woke early (5am) on Sunday morning and made final preparations for the day. We were picked up at the B&B we were staying at 6:15am by Olly, our guide. We then picked up three Americans (Maggie, Amy and Matt) before making our way to Ollyantambo to grab some breakfast and our final group member, Steve a Brit at the end of a 10 month around the world trip.

From Ollyatambo it was another 45 minutes or so drive to Kilometre 82 (measured as a distance on the railway) where we would embark upon the trail. The beginning of the trail saw us take a group photo under what has got to be a famous Inca Trail sign, and then make our way through the first control point. Our porters also had to make their way through a different checkpoint in order to ensure that they were carrying less than 25 kilos each. We had to check in with our passports and then began our journey by crossing a suspension bridge across the Urubamba river. On the other side of the river Olly told us to pick up little stones that we would leave at the first pass the next day.

The Inca Trail

Wow, That´s all I´ve got to say about the Inca Trail.

But seriously, Meg and I had a great time on our four day trek of the Inca Trail. The Inca TrailWe used Q´ente (a group Steve and Jody had used before) and had a great experience. We completed the typical four day trek in three days as our last campsite would have left a near midnight departure for Machu Picchu on the last day. So instead we hustled past Machu Picchu on the third day and camped below the mountain, returning on our fourth day early in the morning (as it opened at 6am).
